I have felt so sleepy today I can hardly get moving. Everywhere flowers are out and I have had hay fever. So I am taking an antihistamine. It's not supposed to make you drowsy but after 10 days, I am feeling very sluggish. Unless it's the extra... Read more

I have been using a very warm pool at the complex down the road from our place: it is so warm it is like swimming in the bath. Using this pool has meant that I can never tell myself I don't feel like a swim because it will be too cold, it is nev... Read more

Starting to make use of the SP nutrition tracker a bit more than before. I've been tracking lots of days, but not really planning my meals as I should. I figure if I get a little routine goinging it will make it easier to fit in more stuff in t... Read more

It is true I did Zumba off that 300 grams, how amazing, and cheap learning for me that holidays can be fatal for weight loss. A week is easy to recover from, but we have a three week trip coming up, so will definitely put more strategies in pla... Read more
